I have a backlog of cake entries from as far back as May. I’m afraid I have no choice but to bore you with cake entries left and right…top and bottom. Promise to bear with me? *smiles sheepishly*
In July, a friend requested me to make her a birthday cake. She collects cuddly stuffed dolls, specifically, stuffed pigs. And for her birthday, she wanted a cake version of one of her favorite stuffed toys. She sent me photos of her cuddly toy/s in all angles. This is what I came up with…
This was my first time to really carve a cake, small scale as it was. Sure, I’ve carved cake into mini bags, but those were regular shapes. I was a little bit nervous making this cake, but after a while, I became unusually and unbelievably calm and relaxed. I wish I could say the same for all my fun projects. Hee hee.
You have to love the suckling pigs! Yes to breastfeeding! Hee hee. :)
This is one of my favorite angles. Every pig has a curly tail, in my mind at least! :)
The pig, by the way, was carved from pound cake. It’s resting on an 8-inch chocolate cake. Yum-mee!
I love how this cake turned out. More so, I love how stress-free the cake decorating process went. So, I’ve so far made cake/fondant/gumpaste replicas of baby shoes, bags, princess dresses and just recently, a piano. What could be next? Replica Ed Hardy? That should be interesting! Haha!
Have a great weekend, y’all! Cheers and mabuhay!
